Welcome to the inaugural TRAIL MIX, inviting all trail users to come together for a fun day of trail work and stewardship in the Tillamook Forest. Whether you’re a mountain biker, trail runner, hiker or equestrian, trail work veteran or first-timer, we welcome you!
DATE: March 30, 2019
LOCATION: Gales Creek Campground on Hwy 6 (Wilson River Highway) near milepost 35.
TIME: Safety meeting begins at 9:30am. Work from 10am-2pm.
WHAT TO BRING: Sturdy boots, work gloves, eye protection, long sleeved shirt, pants, rain gear if wet, hard hat or bike helmet (extra hard hats will be available if you don’t have one), drinking water and a lunch/snacks.
SIGN-UP: You must fill out the sign-up form prior to the work date. This is critical to our planning purposes.
ALL TRAIL WORK TOOLS WILL BE PROVIDED by event supporters!!! If you have your own hand tools, please bring them if you’d like to.
TIMELINE: We will break up into small groups, each led by an experienced crew leader who will guide their work throughout the day on their trail section. Cleanup efforts including raking, drainage clearing and fixing minor tread issues along the Gales Creek, Storey Burn, and the Historic Hiking Loop trails.
AFTER-PARTY! We will offer a chili dinner and craft beverages at the end of the work day back at Gales Creek Campground, along with great raffle prizes to give away, donated by event sponsors! Camping and an opportunity for a ride/run/hike the following day (Sunday, March 31st) is being planned, but will be highly dependent upon weather conditions. Expect an update regarding this option as we get closer to the work date!
We’ll send out two update emails with additional details – one at the end of February and one a week prior to the event. We hope to see you there!
